The answer is goals.

We need more scoring.
I agree to a certain extent. However, Theo can't stop everything.To paraphrase Scotty Bowman, good playoff teams in our day and age begin with goaltending, then defense and finally scoring. The New Jersey Devils are a good example. The currrent edition of the Habs plays the trap and tries to generate offense from turnovers. For that, you initially need defensemen who can stop the opposing forwards and aggressive forechecking. The Leafs, for example, are finally realizing this which is why they are looking for defensemen and possibly goaltending.

A lot of you are making the assumption that Souray will be back in time for the playoffs. This is not a sure thing.
